According to the "weather guessers" the sap should break loose tomorrow and should be good runs through Friday.

Could end up with several thousand gallons of sap!  Here's hopin'!

Bob it sure is! 8 inches of the white stuff came down last night. It is calling for highs of around 45 later this week so hopefully that is a good sign

Weather forcast changed, (imagine that)  it's not supposed to get very warm this week, just above freezing.

So...... there won't be a lot of sap.

Chuck, that's what happened to us last week. I am holding my fingers crossed that the forecast does not change this week.

We had a couple of lines that RAN today, but the rest just dripped.

Right now we have about 150 gallons in the barrels, so we'll gather tomorrow afternoon!

By then, we should have around 300-400 gallons, depends a lot on the wind.
